What happens when 50+ women of color Glow Up together  

Grenada 2017

Hosted at Mount Cinnamon Resort


On October 5-9, 2017, OMNoire hosted its first wellness retreat, the Glow Up Wellness Retreat, in Grenada, West Indies. With over 50 women in attendance from all over the world, including Grenadian residents, this 5-day escape was designed for our attendees to renew, refresh and revitalize with a mix of adventure and nightlife partying. Our days were filled with workshops and panel discussions, decadent meals, daily yoga and meditation, a rainforest hike, sailing cruise topped by a closing night beach bonfire party. Hosted at the prestigious Mount Cinnamon Resort, the Glow Up Wellness Retreat, was created to embody the healthy lifestyle pursuits of women who want to pair fitness, wellness and adventure with travel. We did just that. 

Our speakers included OMNoire Founder Christina Rice, Amber Forester, Glow Up Wellness Retreat Co-Founder and Producer, Necole Kane, founder of xoNecole.com, La Shell Wooten, Licensed Mental Health Therapist, and Healthy Relationships Expert, Michele Davenport, Executive Life Coach and Founder of Mosaic Coaching, and Kered Clement, Grenadian Ambassador and Content Curator. Special thanks to our instructors, Stephanie Holmes (yoga), Sammee Leigh (yoga) and Megan Dawnavette (piloxing).

It was a wonderful experience. It was the first of its kind in Grenada and those of us who attended were really happy with what we took away from everything. I speak for most of us when I say we felt renewed and felt the sisterhood and connected more with each other thru the retreat. Thank you!

This was my first retreat I have ever been to and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I left a different person. I learned to accept me, take risks, step put of my comfort zone and keep going.

There is something so powerful having women of color gather together to look after themselves in a communal setting. Finally wellness reflects me and allows me to just be me. Thank you!

The OMNoire Glow Up Wellness Retreat is a gift you give yourself when your mind, body and soul needs a hug.

The OMNoire Glow Up Wellness Retreat was a life changing experience! I had the opportunity to be surrounded by a group of amazing and beautiful like minded women. The retreat offered me the opportunity to be kind to myself. I had the opportunity to self reflect, set intentions for the life I desire, and try new things that challenged me. I am looking forward to becoming the best version on myself! I am so looking forward to the next retreat!

The Glow Up Wellness Retreat was nothing short of amazing! Waking up to the sound of ocean waves, relaxing yoga on the beach, a catamaran ride with snorkeling, dinner on the beach and enlightening coaching sessions. With the help of the first night’s discussion on managing your fears by controlling your thoughts, I was able to join the ladies on a challenging yet beautiful hike to the Adelphi waterfall in spite of my fear of snakes! Count me in for the next retreat!
